The entry-level HDC-SD20 SD Card Full HD Camcorder from Panasonic gives you high definition recording at an affordable price. Whether you want to record all the moments of your baby's first few years or show off your intimidating skateboard skills, the HDC-SD20 has solid features and the flexibility of SD/SDHC memory card recording, which lends well to Internet sharing. If you're looking to do a little more with your memories, take advantage of the SD20's compatibility with Mac for editing in iMovie.

You don't have to worry about not getting that once in a lifetime moment, either.
